I wouldn't recommend it but that's all I'm gonna say.. I'll let the others field this one
Oh no now you going have to tell me why not.
You think the white halogen would be better? I’m 50-50 on those.
I think there are more people on here that would point you to either HIDs or leaving halogens. I’m on the fence
Ok thanks I started a separate thread, don’t want to high Jack this one.
I'd point you toward a projector retrofit but getting into that too much will just drive the thread into the gutter.
But I will say that leds are not designed for a reflector or halogen/hid projector so they look good but ultimately cause even worse night time vision. Plug n play hid have the same issue but they out better light down than a pnp led does. Either one will cause light scatter and possibly blinding oncoming traffic. Even aiming them lower does not rectify the issue even though some may say it will. Lowering them Just cuts back in your distance and in some cases gets the scatter below oncoming traffics eyes
Avoid LEDs in the factory projector headlights. They don't work because the projectors are designed for halogen bulbs the LEDs create light that is outside the sweet spot for the reflector. HIDs work well but don't go above 35 Watts because there are potential issues with the wiring and UV light. Like @gixer2000 said the best way is to retrofit projectors but that takes a lot of effort and requires a certain skill level. Most people don't have that and aren't interested in doing the work.
There already IS a LED headlight thread... No need to start another one.
There are many LED headlight threads.
